Slum Village’s Young RJ prepares fans for his new single, “Issues”. Issues is a creative collaboration between artists that share a similar artistry and background. Young RJ delivers thought provoking lyrics with BJ the Chicago Kid finessing the track with his soulful vocals. The single was produced by Young RJ and Detroit’s emerging producer, DAG.
Issues follows up, “Wait”, his popular track with Boldy James and Pete Rock that premiered on Mass Appeal. Young RJ is setting the bar high amongst his rap peers by linking up with unique artists in the game and creating a new wave that’s undeniable.
Previously, Young RJ and BJ the Chicago Kid worked together on “Expressive”, a single off Slum’s album, “YES”. Linking up again on “Issues”, their lyrics paint a picture of our current political climate, inner cities, and of course… personal inner demons.
“Issues” is the third single from his debut solo album, “Blaq RoyalT” which is slated for an October 10, 2017 release. According to RJ’s management team
(along with C’Jay Shaw of Politic Group )
“the collaboration could have not come at a better time.. given the economic struggles in cities like Detroit and Chicago, current police violence, and our political atmosphere..”
